Valentine's Day

"you must allow me to tell you how much i ardently admire and love you"
   -mr. darcy,  pride & prejudice

Since we will be moving a few short months, I have let cleaning, organizing and decorating slide.  I threw together a quick vignette for the most romantic day of the year. 

Using my DIY glitter candles leftover from Christmas and one of my all-time favorite quotes from one of the most romantic movies ever, I added in some roses the hubs surprised me with in a small mercury vase I picked up at Marshall's for two smackers.

Question of the day:  What is your favorite romantic movie?  Can we all agree that Colin Firth is the best Mr. Darcy ever?  Talk amongst yourself.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yessie, yes, yes. Colin Firth is the sexiest Mr. Darcy EVER. No matter how many remakes...he will reign supreme. Such a fox, and I kinda want to rip those ridiculous froofy shirts right off him.

Whoa. That got graphic.

Anywhoo. Pride and Prejudic is right up there in my favs. Followed closesly by Casablanca.

Happy V-day!

P.S. Apparently I was so revved up by thoughts of Colin Firth that I misspelled half of my previous comment.

Is it warm in here? ;)

Love those red glitter candles.

I have been horrible about cleaning my house lately. I had to do it on Saturday when we had friends over for dinner and it was DISGUSTING. But, now the house looks great for another few weeks. ;)

And, I have no clue what my favorite romantic movie is... so I'm skipping that question.

I am not moving, and I have done no decorating for V-day. You're doing better than me :)

Favorite Romantic Movie: Moonstruck. OR, An Affair to Remember.

Quite the dichotomy...

Just watched him in "What a Girl Wants" the other day on ABCFamily. Swoon. Let's take a turn about the room. It's so refreshing!

How about "Love Actually" or "Bridget Jones' Diary"?

I agree with Anne - those three she mentioned are my favorites!

I didn't decorate at all for Valentine's.

My favorie of all times- Pretty Woman. Seen it about a million times and melt every single one. Richard Gere and his salt & pepper hair make me swoon...
